      that looks interesting. Done the vimball bit then I try to install
      rainbow.vba (having gunzipped it);

      vim rainbow.vba gives:
      ***vimball*** Source this file to extract it! (:so %)
      Error detected while processing BufEnter Auto commands for "*.vba":
      E119: Not enough arguments for function: vimball#ShowMesg
      Press ENTER or type command to continue

      So I try to extract it anyway:
      Vimball Archive
      extracted <after/syntax/c/rainbow.vim>: 100 lines
      wrote /home/hgs/.vim/after/syntax/c/rainbow.vim

      Press ENTER or type command to continue

      So that means it only applies to C files out of the box?
      I think it would be more useful it it were setup as a plugin
      one could use for Perl, Ruby, (your later message covers lisp), etc
      I don't consider myself fluent in vim internals, so maybe I've
      missed something with this paragraph.

      Your web page has:

      <br><li><a href="vbafiles/RunView.vba.gz">Rndm</a> <a name="RUNVIEW"></a> <!-- {{{2 -->
      <table bgcolor="#005533" border="0" cellspacing="0"><tbody><tr><td><font size="-1"><font color="#aaaaaa"><em>Updated Dec 15, 2005 (v1e)</em>


      I think that should be (written as if this were a patch):
      -<br><li><a href="vbafiles/RunView.vba.gz">Rndm</a> <a name="RUNVIEW"></a> <!-- {{{2 -->
      +<br><li><a href="vbafiles/RunView.vba.gz">RunView</a> <a name="RUNVIEW"></a> <!-- {{{2 -->

      Thank you,
